Virbac’s IT department evaluated a number of CMS solutions to find the right fit for them. “Jahia ranked well in terms of functionality, but what really impressed us was its ease of use for contributors,” said Albert Brummer, E-Business Project Manager at Virbac.
Working with Capgemini, a Jahia partner, Virbac went live with Jahia’s platform in 2013. The first websites on the new CMS were France, Poland and Australia. “These early deployments allowed us to validate the relevance of the web architecture and to ensure that there were no technical or language problems in the user interface.That initial success gave us the confidence that we would be able to accommodate the needs of all the other countries,”
Most importantly, though, 50 of Virbac’s 52 subsidiary websites have been deployed, with the remaining two currently being migrated! That means there are now anywhere from 100-150 total contributors into their website ecosystem.
High reliability and availability has also played a key part in keeping subsidiaries happy. Now that the sites are harmonized, the corporate marketing team has shifted to helping them with content production and adoption, which is easy to do with Jahia’s Local Site.
